“They've been our plumbers for 20 years, and we're very high on them. They're very responsive and do the best job they can. We have an old house and a lot of plumbing issues. They are always there for us in a crisis. The owner is really great about making sure everything is done the right way. He works with them and sometimes comes out to make sure everything has been done the right way. I'd give Real Plumbers an A+ overall.”
“My experience was good. The old boiler broke, so they ordered and installed a new boiler. The replacement machine came on beautifully, and now it's humming away in the basement. I thought they did well. I've recommended them to other people. I would grade Real Plumbers as an A+.”
“They're great. They do all my plumbing work. Last time, they worked on the hot water heater. They get an A+ from me.”
“They did good. They did excellent plumbing work. I'd rate them as an A.”
“They did a really good job. I live in an 1890's house that's had a lot of changes. We've tried a couple of times to straighten the plumbing problems out unsuccessfully. They sort of approached the job very methodically. Something got figured out, rerouted some pipes, that sort of thing. They solved the problem that I've been messing with for quite a long time. I'd give them an A+ overall. I think they're really customer friendly and communicated well. I had no complaints at all. I already have recommended them.”
“They did work on a hot water heater. They were very friendly, knowledgeable, and explained everything. They did a diagnosis first, sent it to me before doing anything, and gave me some options for the repair. They called companies when I had questions about warranties, the legwork of calling my hot water company, and then calling the other company that was in charge of the warranty. That was all taken care of by admission. He knew the questions to ask and the information needed to find out about the warranty and the parts to save, so we'd find out what was under warranty. I'd give them an A+ overall.”
“They did plumbing work to find a leak in my house due to a workmanship defect by the builder. The plumber was able to detect the leak with very little additional damage and was able to locate it and fix it. It's not flooding in my house anymore. So, it's working. They're an A+ company. He provided a lot of additional information when he didn't have to go through the trouble. I had no complaints whatsoever.”
“They did plumbing work. They apparently knew what they were doing. I'd give them an A+ rating.”
“They did basic plumbing maintenance.”
“They did plumbing work. I liked the communication. I'd give them an A overall.”
